Advantos Enterprise Upgradeby: Bill Haskett, President
We, at Advantos have been busy since our last newsletter. We have been working
on our enterprise application to allow the use of any web browser. In addition,
there are a number of enhancements and upgraded processes that are included.
We upgraded our web framework away from one Microsoft technology to another and
this allows users to use the web browser of their choice. We are running this
upgrade in our testing environment and are using it for our own corporate books
and for application testing. This new version should be ready by late June and
current Advantos customers will be upgraded at no charge.
We have also upgraded our Windows servers to the latest stable version of Windows.
We have upgraded our web site to use a secure and encryped connection instead of
an standard un-encrypted connection. This secure and encrypted connection has
been active in our Hometastic® application for over a year.
We have made a number of enhancements to our application. We have enhanced importing
to include importing A/P and posting invoices as paid items. This saves a great
deal of time posting ACH checks. We have enhanced our electronic banking to automate
importing remittance files and bank transactions facilitating bank reconciliations
(BAI2 formatted files). If banks provide this service then Advantos can automatically
import the data too. We have enhanced the ability to send emails on work orders and
customer service requests, including integrating customer requests with Hometastic®.
We have also provided a number of fixes to various issues including monthly reporting,
security enhancements, integration of "real-time" accounting information to Hometastic®,
improved logging, etc. Call us for more information.
